Each year at our Passover seders, we pass around a cup with slivers of paper inside. On each piece of paper is a number, and the number that each person pulls out signifies his/her turn reading certain sections. I was thinking this year that we could make it a little bit nicer (and easier to keep up with than a sliver of paper) by turning the numbers into wine glass charms.
To make a consistent diameter size (and nice round shape) for the wine glass charms, I just used the handle of a rolling pin as a guide:
On each end of the wire, I bent it back around a pair of little jewelry pliers so that together they would make a nice secure hook. At this point, though, only bend one of the two ends back:
When you’re completely done, though, this is how the two ends will clasp together:
I used a corsage pin to make the hole in the scrapbook paper so that a jump ring would fit through:
Open the jump ring up a bit with the pliers and fit one end through the hole in the scrapbook paper circle:
…and if you’re going for a simple look, just clip the jump-ring onto the wire and you’re done:
Otherwise, you can add some pretty beads to each side:
Here I added the number (this will be reader #16):
I’m so happy with how these turned out!
